Abstract

In this paper, a groundwater flow pattern identification algorithm using contamination measurements is developed for particle models modelling transport of pollutants in groundwater. The parameter estimation problem is formulated as an optimization problem and is solved with a gradient based algorithm. For each generated particle track, the adjoint track is determined. These adjoint tracks are used to efficiently com
